Ascension, one of the city’s hottest coffee houses also serving great food and wine and located in the Dallas Design District, announced today that they are opening a second location in The Crescent, uptown.
“Ascension is a first-class operation that is both stylish and innovative. It’s truly in a category by itself and will be a tremendous asset to The Crescent,” said John Zogg, managing director for Crescent Real Estate Equities, LLC. “Ascension is known for their passion and authenticity, and you’ll see it everywhere from the coffee they import and roast themselves, to their creative menu and wine list, and even their cigar offerings.”
